This page is dedicated to discuss issues related to the port to KDE4.
As a first step, we are leaving Qt3Support, if possible. There are cases when it is best to port to the corresponding Qt4 classes. Examples of these are the QButtonGroups, KActions, KPageWidget, QTabBar
For now, focus on make it work. Assess whether it will be faster using Qt3Support or a newer class.
The repository to use is the one in KDE SVN. svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/office/kmymoney.
I taught that we can put here a list of features that are known to work (after a developer testing):
|Tips and tricks||Working|
|Charts||Not working||The charts on KOffice have changed. Last time I tried I had problems accessing the correct namespace. (asoliverez)|
|Webconnect||Not Working||We'll have to enable D-bus to check for multiple running instances|
|Database||Working||Passes unit tests for MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite3. (fvilas)|
|GPG||Not Working||Thomas will have to take a look at it|
Also, here you have the KrazyEBN report, which reports common issues on the code. Krazy Report
Please include the areas you are working on to avoid overlapping with other developers.
The following are on my TODO list but that does not mean that I don't need any help on them:
I will work on the account selector, probably migrate it to Qt4 widgets, because it does all kinds of weird stuff that can be probably optimized. (fixed by conet)
Working on the i18n and documentation issues with KDE-i18n team.
Also going through the Krazy report, and fixing issues there.
I will try to keep the strings together and work on coordination for the integration of/with other KDE applications. On the code front maybe setting up the Qt-Designer plugin for the KMyMoney widgets.
Please report here the issues you find.
libkgpg is best left as it is for now. Thomas plans to do an overhaul of the whole class when there is time to use the library provided by the PIM libs (gpgme++). If anyone else gets around to work on it, please coordinate with Thomas
libkdchart is an extract from koffice. If we find a bug there, it is best to report it to the koffice maintainers
The mymoney folder contains the engine. It is covered by the unit tests and they run ok. This is a critical area of the application, so check with Thomas or Alvaro before making a change.
Of course, if you find a critical bug in any of these, let us know.
https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kmymoney-devel. Use it to discuss issues related to the port to KDE4.
Alvaro Soliverez is coordinating the KDE4 effort. You can reach me at asoliverez at gmail.com or on IRC under Hei_ku in the #kmymoney channel. Alternatively, you can contact Thomas Baumgart on the developers list.
(Contact the coordinator if you are willing to contribute)
Have it ready for kdereview before the end of the year. Is it too optimistic?
